We know from research and lessons learned that in order for organizations and individuals to prevent incidents and do the right things, organizations and all appropriate people must be equipped with the right tools to get the right information to the right people in the right places at the right times with the right documentation so individuals can do the right things.

Part 3 of Doing the Right Things provided an overview and a partial list of the right people, which can include people within your organization and people from one or more third-parties.
The Right Places and the Right Times
Once you have the right people identified, getting the right information to the right places at the right times can be a challenge. Unfortunately there have been way too many tragedies, suicides, targeted shootings, sexual assaults, acts of violence and too many other incidents where the right information existed, the right people were part of a team, but the right information did not get to the right places at the right times.
The right places may include:
- Off-site Conferences
- On-site and Off-site Meetings
- On-site and Off-site Trainings
- Multiple/Changing Locations
- Multiple/Changing Departments and Silos
- Mobile Devices
- And others…
The right times include:
- Immediately after incident reports are made
- In Real-Time with anytime accessibility
- In Real-Time during investigations
- In Real-Time during interventions
- In Real-Time during risk assessments
- Before upcoming events
- In Real-Time during meetings with legal counsel
- In Real-Time during meetings with insurance agents
- In Real-Time during meetings with law enforcement
- In Real-Time during meetings with mental health resources
- In Real-Time to access details, checklists, contact lists, etc.
- And many others…
How many of the incidents at your organization could have been prevented? Research from hundreds of incidents reveal the majority of fines, lawsuits, ethics violations, workplace violence, suicides, bullying, cyberbullying, sexual assaults, child abuse and numerous other incidents were preventable, but the right people did not have the right information in the right place at the right time to intervene, prevent and do the right things.
